"Luminous and affecting...?Exposure] examines the often fine line between art and abuse...? Taut in plot, beautifully realistic, and intelligently disturbing." -Harper's Bazaar Ann Rogers appears to be a happily married, successful young woman. A talented photographer, she creates happy memories for others, videotaping weddings, splicing together scenes of smiling faces, editing out awkward moments. But she cannot edit her own memories so easily-images of a childhood spent as her father's model and muse, the subject of his celebrated series of controversial photographs. To cope, Ann slips into a secret life of shame and vice. But when the Museum of Modern Art announces a retrospective of her father's shocking portraits, Ann finds herself teetering on the edge of self-destruction, desperately trying to escape the psychological maelstrom that threatens to consume her. "Astounding...?old in prose as multifaceted as a diamond, crystalline and mesmerizing. 'Remarkable' hardly goes far enough." -Cosmopolitan "Impossible to put down...?athryn Harrison is an extremely gifted writer, poetic, passionate, and elegant." -San Francisco Chronicle "Exquisite, exhilarating, and harrowing." -Donna Tartt, author of The Secret History and The Little Friend "A breathless urban nightmare not easy to forget. Stark, brilliant, and original work." -Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
